Trump for President?
Paul Craig Roberts
Perhaps it has occurred to you as it has to me that the United States
is no longer capable of producing political leadership. In the current
issue of Trends Journal, Gerald Celente describes the eight candidates
(at the time he went to press) for the US presidential nomination as
“Liars, cowards, freaks & fools.”
Celente put it well. If you look at the sorry collection that
aspires to be the CEO of what continues to be described as the
“exceptional, indispensable, most important country with the largest
economy and military, the world’s only Superpower, the Uni-power,” you
see a collection of nobodies. America is like the last days of Rome when
contenting factions fought to put their puppet on the throne.
There is no known politician in America who measures up to Vladimir
Putin’s ankle, or to the knee of China’s leaders, or to the waist of
Ecuador’s, Bolivia’s, Venezuela’s, Argentina’s, Brazil’s, or to the
chests of India’s and South Africa’s.
In Europe, the UK, Australia, and Canada, the natural leaders are also frozen out of the corrupt system.
In the US, “leadership” positions depend on financial support from
the ruling economic interests. American presidents and politicians
represent about six powerful private interest groups and no one else.
